Genus Gladiolus
Variety Evergreen
Type Tender Perennial Corm
Common Name Sword Lily
Border Position Container, Middle
Bulb Size I
Soil Type Acid, Alkaline, Chalky, Fertile, Neutral, Sandy
Scent Unscented
Site Full Sun
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Height 1m (3ft 3in)
Spacing Plant the corms 10cm (4in) apart and 10-15cm (4-6in) deep in clumps or lines. Secured deep in the ground, you are less likely to need a stake. For containers plant five corms in a 15cm (6in) pot at 20cm (8in) deep, you can pack them in more closely than in the ground.
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant fifteen corms every couple of weeks to give a succession of flowers through the summer and autumn. If you have heavy soil start them off in containers in early spring, put them somewhere bright and cold, but frost-free, and water. Wait for them to shoot and plant them out in the garden from May onwards, by which time you’ll have well established plants.
Care Tips Water regularly during growing season and stake tall varieties. Lift after first frosts. If you're growing in containers, stop watering at the end of summer and bring the pots indoors for the winter. Leave them in their pots or take them out and dry. Put them out again next spring after danger of night frosts has passed. Find out more advice about how to plant and grow gladioli corms here.
Flowering July - October (3 months from planting)
Vase Life Remove the bottom leaves on gladioli, I prefer to leave the spike tip as this is part of the plants appeal but removing it will encourage more flowers below.

Only half the gladioli came up. Eringeron 5* As all grew well. Camelot Cream seeds 1* as all seedlings failed. The Pelargonium Collection 2* as they grew very slowly and one hasn’t flowered. Rubbish value for money
